These are an indication of the widespread jay-walking prevalent ia a nation which prides itself on being wide awake and resouceful. All those working to further automobile safety are striTing to impress the motorist with his obligation, to the pedestrian. Nevertheless, the fact is that many accidents are the pedestrian's fault Moreover, the pedestrian must remember that he is at a disadvantage. Being in the right will avail his flesh and bones nothing against moving steel. The pedestrian is almost completely safe from automobiles while on the sidewalk. When he steps of£ tie curb to cross the street, the burden of his own protection falls on himself. He should, cross at intersections. He should cross with the signal. He should always look. When, crossing where there is no sicnil light, he should be doubly careful. If he does these things and waits till he can cross; safely, there is little likelihood off a vehicle hitting him.
